, this appears to be the very first time senator john mccain has signed onto one of the president's legislative priorities, and you may be surprised to learn that republicans have made this sudden shift from previous immigration proposals such as herman cain's electrified fence and mitt romney's stance of self-deportation. after all, it wasn't even a year ago that congressman steve king of iowa compared america's immigrant selection process to that of picking out a dog. >> pick the one that's the friskiest, the one that's engaged the most, and not the one that's over there sleeping in the corner. you get the pick of the litter, and yourself a pretty good bird dog. we got the pick of every darn civilization on the planet. >> right, pick work dogs, not lazy dogs from those donor countries. congressman king said later his remarks were meant as a compliment. charming. so there has been an evolution by the republican party and it's not because rick perry accused anyone of not having a heart. senator mccain, how about some of that famous straight talk? >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at
of transition for american foreign policy as senator john kerry faces a high-stakes job interview to be the secretary of state. kerry's confirmation hearings were rather cordial hosted by the foreign relations committee which he's led for the past four years. but it was an unexpected moment when the hearings were interrupted by a protester that offered perhaps the most telling revelation about the man and the moment. >> i'm tired of my friends dying. i don't know if they're going to be alive the next day. >> when i first came to washington and testified, i obviously was testifying as part of a group of people who came here to have their voices heard, and that is, above all, what this place is about. people measure what we do. >> kerry's confirmation hearing today comes a day after secretary hillary clinton stood her ground offering a robust defense of her handling of those attacks in benghazi that killed four americans, including ambassador chris stevens. at wednesday's long-awaited hearings on benghazi, clinton took responsibility for security lapses but that obviously was not go
, it will be the most profound political change we have seen in our lifetime. >> seismic. >> julian and john, thank you so much. i'm sorry we didn't have as much time as we would have liked but thank you both for joining us. i know you will continue to join us during the president's second term. and there is the president preparing and watching the parade as it passes and saluting frequently. we're all having such a great year in the gulf, we've decided to put aside our rivalry. 'cause all our states are great. and now is when the gulf gets even better. the beaches and waters couldn't be more beautiful. take a boat ride or just lay in the sun. enjoy the wildlife and natural beauty. and don't forget our amazing seafood. so come to the gulf, you'll have a great time. especially in alabama. you mean mississippi. that's florida. say louisiana or there's no dessert. brought to you by bp and all of us who call the gulf home. parade as it passes and saluting my name is marjorie reyes, and i'm a chief warrant officer. i love the fact that quicken loans provides va loans. quicken loans understood the details an
adull terer newt gingrich who called the speech goofy left wingism. then the bitter john mccain complained that there wasn't enough bipartisanship, which is particularly rich. and "the wall street journal" described it as contemptuous talk. what do these people want, the president to announce he was going to invade iran? >> it's funny, newt gingrich in an interview said he felt like 80% of the speech that reagan could have delivered this speech. what he thought was the liberal kind of gobbledygook i think was around climate change. i also remember that newt gingrich -- >> stop laughing, karen. >> -- was sitting on a couch with nancy pelosi talking about the need to address climate change. he's seemingly had a change of heart around that. this is to be expected. the president gives a speech that's the most robust defense of liberalism that he has given that has probably been given in public in the last 10 or 20 years -- >> you say that but actually the context of the speech was embracing the nation. he was trying to be inclusive. >> right. >> i think that's right. he had that
requested for one msd team or an additional msd team and the replay from john said unfortunately msd cannot support the request. there was a request made for more security. and it was denied on june 7th. and so madam secretary, the consulate became a death trap. that's malpractice. you said you take responsibility. what does responsibility mean, madam secretary? you're still in your job and there are four people at the department of state that have culpability in this that are still in their jobs. i heard the answer about firing or removing personnel. i get that, but this was gross negligence. at one point in time can our administration and our government fire someone whose gross negligence left four americans dead in benghazi? what does the word responsibility mean to you, madam secretary? >> i think i've made that very clear, congressman. and let me say that we've come here and made a very open transparent presentation. i did not have to declassify the arb. i could have joined 18 of the other arbs under both democratic and republican administrations, kept it classified and just said good-
that ice. >> da economics would never work in practice? sadly not. in fact, speaker john boehner has just given him the job of drawing up a new budget that will completely erase the federal deficit in just ten years. and only through spending cuts and no new taxes whatsoever. to do this mr. ryan would have to cut every government operation by one-sixth or if he choose not
